your ERP product name and version.
We have Baan 5.0b
does one order in the ERP equate to one document unit comin from WM side?
are you using a pub/sub setup?
how do you get at the status of an order creation (SP, native API, table look-up)?
All webMethods transaction originate through TN. The way our integration works is from webMethods TN in the processing rule service after mapping to the backend strucutre, we make a socket connection to the XML/Java Adapter of the ERP system. The business object is invoked through this call, order processed and a response XML returned.
The response XML is parsed and if there was an error a notification is sent to the user for required action, TN “User Status” updated to “Error”.
This is today’s scenario. The issue with this scenario is there is no reconciliation in webMethods except for order was created in Backend or not. We would like to have data like this was the order in the backend system. Now if the backend business object returns the order what would be the best approach to store the order for easy reconciliation.
Is it recommended to store in a custom table, somewhere in native TN or not do anything and build an interface with backend system?
- what touch points on the client side need to see the result (TN Console user, web page user, whatever)?
This data should be available for:
- Reporting (through wM or another (not specific))
- Available such as to build a dsp page by building some services.
- WM components you have at your deposal (TN, Monitor, Modeler, etc).
TN and Modeler. Monitor is available now but would not be licensed in future by our company policy statements.
